Underlying this title is a question, one which echoes through every one of my posts: How can I stand freely in the truth of my life, feel the mettle of my unique existence, and act from there, whatever my outer circumstances may be? It is a question that has echoed down through my days. Sometimes I know what it feels like to stand in the centre of my life and other times I forget. I lose myself in concerns and anxieties that have me running in circles like a gerbil in a cage. One reason I write is to provide a structure, a context for the exploration of a question that absorbs me; and no question has taken up more of my attention than this one. When I have not known what to do with myself or where to turn next in my life, my deepest consolation has been to spend time in solitude. There, I am usually able to return to myself. In times like this, my companion is likely to be a notepad and pen………..
What is your companion when you feel like this??
